Oh, you wacky Russians! It's not enough that you make such cool spacecraft in real life, but now you all get up in KSP and give us all this crazy, fun tech too?

Ooh. I want this to work. I'm going to have to download your monitor and mess with it. I This capsule looks pretty cool to begin with and I'm definitely interested in seeing more IVAs with functional displays. :)

This is a mockup of IVA screen layouts and their positions, please comment/criticise and tell us what's missing or is extraneous

If you angle the bottom monitor, you'll end up restricting the docking window, and the top monitor should be at an angle, as that surface is already at an angle.

alexustas you are one of my favorite modders, even your explanations of your intentions are freaking awesome.

My preference would be to decrease the size of screen #3 and either put in another window, or increase the size of those present.

If its not possible to increase window sizes, is it possible to display a "camera" view on it? like the view directly above the pod?

I'm really loving this lander cabin! Here's the latest iteration of the MEM on a Kerbal-orbit shakedown test.

I ran into an issue with the bottom node of the cabin when trying to build this.

The bottom node is quite large and if you use a low profile decoupler the cabin's node passes through the decoupler and attaches to the fuel tank below.

When I tried to decouple and take off from the surface, the coupler blew away, but the cabin remained attached to the bottom gold fuel tank.

If I use a large decoupler the problem goes away. I think with a smaller bottom node it wouldn't be a problem.

Camera display on monitors is next on my list after I'm done with displaying variables on monitors.

It appears possible, but there's no end to annoyances Unity might throw your way when doing something like that, so no promises. :)

The engine appears to be one of ZZZ's models that he did for KSPI, I also see the capacitors from the Near Future mod, looks like some B9 parts, the RTGs from AIES aerospace and the SDHI service module & dockingport....
